With more than 20 meetings planned among communities, standing committees, the board of directors, and others, hundreds of auto care industry leaders attend from all segments of the supply chain.

Awards Presentation 
Leaders in education, innovation and the next generation will be honored in our awards ceremony as we present winners of the Mort Schwartz Excellence in Education Award, and ACE (Auto Care Career and Education) Award.  

Vehicle Forums 
Forums are a new addition at this year's Fall Leadership Days. These forums will emphasize the central role of collaboration in industry advancements. This groundbreaking opportunity allows attendees to interact with the entire supply chain, from manufacturers to retailers, and includes service professionals and supporting businesses. The goal of these forums is for attendees to discuss unique topics, identify opportunities, and overcome obstacles in a collaborative environment.

Forum topics will include:

  • Under Vehicle
  • Under Hood
  • Emerging Technology
  • Paint, Body and Trim

Community and Committee Meetings 
Leadership Days meetings are intended for the official volunteer leaders of the association’s communities and committees. Non-volunteer leaders may attend as guests (to noted open meetings) and the association always looks forward to welcoming new volunteer leaders for the future. Attending as a guest is the best way to secure your seat for a future committee term, of which nominations open in November 2024.
